7. Learn to Fail or Fail to Learn
It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all - in which case, you fail by default.
You will have failures in your life, but it is what you do during those valleys that will determine the heights of your peaks.
In life, the things that go wrong are often the very things that lead to other things going right.
Nobody else is paying as much attention to your failures as you are... To everyone else, it's just a blip on the radar screen, so just move on.
I found that nothing in life is worthwhile unless you take risks.
